Burning Paradise

The bleakest martial arts thriller of its era, Ringo Lam Ling-tung's BURNING PARADISE finds legendary Ching Dynasty heroes Fong Sai-Yuk (DRUNKEN MASTER III's Willie Chi Tian-Sheng) and Hung Hei-Kwun (Yang Sheng) caught up in the Manchu government's quest to exterminate the students of Shaolin Temple (the premise of several martial arts films produced at Shaw Brothers). Following his capture at the hands of the Manchu general Crimson (John Ching Tung), Fong is incarcerated with his fellow pupils at Red Lotus Temple, a subterranean netherworld riddled with booby traps. Turning his back on Shaolin, Hung allies himself with the prison commander, Elder Kung (Wong Kam-Kong), a brutal psychopath who likes to adorn his garish paintings with human blood and seeks new specimens for his collection of mummified women. However, the prisoners may have a surprise ally in the form of Boroke (YOUNG HERO OF SHAOLIN PART II's Maggie Lin Quan), Kung's right hand woman, whose love for one Shaolin fighter may be enough to change her allegiance. Filled with fantasy kung-fu action, Burning Paradise is a 90's Hong Kong classic!
